Hamilton Lewis O'Donnell from Omah, County Tyrone, Ireland updated Jan 2008
This gentleman came to Australia and was the great great great grand daddy of the Aussie O'Donnells here in Victoria.
He was born in Ireland and married Jane Stephens.
One of his children (Hamilton Lewis born 1810- 1866) married Emily Jane Todd and they had 5 children. Four boys and one girl.
One of the boys Hamilton Lewis O'Donnell married Annie Brown. One of their sons Albert Edward who was born in 1879 is my grandfather.
Hamilton and Annie had 13 children. Albert Edward was born in 1879 was Roy Albert's dad.
This is a very big family with ties to many other big families that lived in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
They have spread around Australia and some of the younger members of the family are using the Internet and search engines to share each other's information.
Keep in touch
I have decided to write a Family Tree, so if anyone wishes to share their information with me that would be wonderful.
Cheers and thanks
